Customer Question
Hello I was wondering...

Hello I was wondering if a deferred judgement is the same as a deferred adjudication?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I received a deferred judgement in Iowa, However the job application I'm applying for is in Colorado and is asking me if I have ever received a deferred adjudication.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I'm just wondering if its the same thing and needs to be reported on the job application

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Nope okay

Here is the relevant Iowa code addressing this issue:https://law.justia.com/codes/iowa/2011/titlexvi/subtitle3/chapter907/907-3/You will see it refers to the same type of disposition as Colorado where a case is ultimately dismissed after a trial period so to speak.

would I answer yes to having a deferred adjudication?
Immigration Lawyer: legalgems, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

If the applicant has the listed offense or a similar offense/incident on their record then since it will typically be revealed in a background check most people will answer honestly since many employers will not hire if they discover the incident on their own.

Employers may also consider the gravity of the offense and how long ago it was along with other mitigating factors.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
